Nu Chapter History
Lambda Phi Epsilon's Nu Chapter began it’s humble beginnings as a fraternity known as Delta Gamma Tau. DGT was founded on the 21st of March, 1989. On the 15th of September, 1992 at 1:30am, all the brothers of Delta Gamma Tau reorganized and became brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon. With Nu Chapter’s induction into Lambda Phi Epsilon, the fraternity began its massive expansion on the East Coast. Nu Chapter was extremely involved in the chartering and growth into cities and schools such as: Boston, Pennsylvania State University, Binghamton, New York University, Cornell University, University of Toronto, and John Hopkins University. Those chapters soon began their growth and expansion to include a significant amount of East coast and international chapters.
Lambda Phi Epsilon History
A group of nineteen dedicated men decided to form Lambda Phi Epsilon on February 25, 1981. Noting that Asian fraternities and sororities at the UC campuses were recognized only as service organizations due to their memberships focus on specific Asian groups and to the exclusion of other ethnic groups, the goal of the founders was to transcend this limitation. The founders hoped to set new and higher standards of excellence for all Asian-interest organizations to follow, while feeling a need to offer a fraternity that would be recognized by the IFC and the Greek system.
While the original charter focused on Asian Pacific Americans, people from all ethnic backgrounds were welcome to join and support the brotherhood of Lambda Phi Epsilon. Their vision was that the members would eventually become the leaders of their respective communities and bridge the gaps that divided the Asian American community through an affiliation with a common organization.
